File Exclusions getting complex requirements

Veeam Logoby odge » Sat Apr 14, 2018 12:22 pm


Are there any fancy ways to use exclusions.

A client uses another product for SQL backup management (actually quite a lot of them do), so no veeam in use for Logs and fulls. We want to exclude all the SQL files as well because of their cluster setup, BUT, as with all things IT, we dont want to exclude master and msdb.

They are all in the same directory as the user databases, rather annoyingly. So my solutions are 1) get the client to place them in different directories, or figure out a smarter way for exclusions, not to exclude certain files.

Any tricks here I could use? Any tricks you could add on at some point?

Kind Regards

Most easy step would be to place the DB's you do want to backup in a different directory because other options may make it more complex (then it already is ;-)).

Did you look into database exclusions as well:
